The 2020 Western Loudoun Art and Studio Tour (WLAST) is the 15th anniversary of the tour. Our mission is to help promote Loudoun County as a scenic and cultural destination by producing a tour of our county’s visual artists, to celebrate their work and to provide an educational experience for the public. The tour is produced as a joint project of Franklin Park Arts Center, Purcellville, Virginia and Round Hill Arts Center, Round Hill, Virginia.
Professional and emerging visual artists whose studios in Western Loudoun County meet specified criteria may apply as Studio Artists. Loudoun artists who do not have a Western Loudoun studio suitable for visitors may apply as Guest Artists.
Media and Jury:
Two- and three-dimensional work will be considered, including but not limited to painting, drawing, fiber, wood, ceramics, photography, sculpture and jewelry. All work is submitted to an independent group of jurors immediately following the close of the application period at 11:59 PM MST (Mountain Standard Time) on February 1, 2020. Applicants are notified of their acceptance/non-acceptance by February 17, 2020.
Required Artist Information Meeting:
All accepted artists are required to attend the artist information meeting held on April 21, 2020 at Franklin Park Art Center in order to learn of new information for the tour, pick up their tour materials, and interact with other artists in their geographic clusters.
Because this year is the 15th anniversary year and there are several new aspects of the tour, attendance by accepted artists is required.
For the 15th anniversary tour, WLAST will be advertised as a three-day tour: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 5, 6, and 7, 2020. The selection of days open will be made in the application and advertised as such in all promotional material.
· Studios (either single artists or with guests) must be open Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7, 2020 from 10:00AM to 5:00PM each day
· Studios (either single artists or with guests) may add Friday, June 5, 2020 from 10:00AM to 5:00PM as an additional day and will be indicated in promotional material
· Art centers (Franklin Park and Round Hill) and the Purcellville Train Station will only be open Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM each day
Application fees are based on status as a guest artist (no studio) or an artist in their own studio, with or without a guest.
· Artist in their own studio with or without a guest = $200
· Guest artist = $250
Fees are paid at the time of application either through PayPal in CaFE (credit card) or by mailing a check payable to:
· Friends of Franklin Park Arts Center/WLAST
· P. O. Box 653
· Round Hill, VA 20142
When paying by check, artists will be required to check out in CaFÉ by adding the check number for the payment.
Artists who are not juried/not accepted into the tour will be refunded all but $50 of their application fee.
WLAST is supported by a 100% volunteer planning committee and funded through a variety of means such as grants and donations. We ask that accepted artists assist where possible in promoting the tour, volunteering for tasks and participating in fund raising efforts to ensure that advertising reaches the widest audience possible.
